GSMS Students Skype Across the Atlantic

A woman standing in front of students.Sixth grade students at Glade Spring Middle School had the rare opportunity to Skype with author Dan Smith from Newcastle, England.

The students have been reading, "My Brother's Secret" set during WWII. Written from the perspective of a Hitler Youth, it tells a story of friendship, loyalty and courage.  Mr. Smith recently contacted GSMS English teacher, Pam Mink, in regards to her request to Skype with her students and Lisa McNeil's students. Mr. Smith answered questions that the students asked and gave some insights on what it takes to be a writer.  Mrs. Carolyn Wilson covered the story for the Washington County News.
